This is a great place to stay. Very clean rooms. VERY comfortable beds. Plenty of towels. Nice little complimentary breakfast, nothing fabulous, but you get a variety of hot and cold items. I would definitely recommend this hotel. A+

Family suite was perfect for our family of 5 and little dog. Room was clean and spacious. It had all the amenities needed. We wish more hotels would offer similar rooms and do away with the sleeper sofa's. Breakfast was perfect, eggs, sausage, pastries, juice and lots of coffee options! Staff was friendly. Only minutes from Drury and Missouri State.... More

Rail Haven is a cool little place to stay. It has lots of character and history. It's been very clean every time we stay there. The breakfast is always really good. The staff are always friendly and helpful.

Elvis stayed at the Rail Haven in 1956. The motel, right on Route 66 in Springfield, Missouri, is the old style where all the rooms are on one floor and you park in front of your room. But the motel has been very well taken care of. The rooms are very comfortable. And an added bonus: the motel is within... More

I've stayed at newer places, and roomier places. But the character of the place and the friendly staff made the stay very enjoyable. My husband and I were traveling with our son, and I was surprised to find a true multi room suite. The rooms were not large, but the value was terrific.

From reading the on line informatio it his motel would be on three beautiful acres but the thre acres are covered with building. Our room was very small which I know goes along the historical part. I thought there would be much more of a fifties ombiance feel. It was ok but one experience was enough for us.

Jacquie Y: Thank you for your review. I apologize you were disappointed with your stay. The property is set on 3 acres with 93 rooms. We do have a 50s theme in the lobby. We try to preserve the historic feel of the property, but each room has the modern conveniences like wifi internet and flat screen televisions. More

We were extremely happy with our room. The room was very clean and the staff were nice and helpful. The bed was super comfy! I enjoyed reading about the history of the motel from the pictures on the wall.

Old property on route 66. Very, very clean. Everything in place and working. This is a great stay. Excellent breakfast, however could use more dining space. not enough tables if a crowd was there. Not much else to say except I would recommend this motel to anyone needing a quiet, very clean and comfortable place to stay.

Gordon V: Thank you for your review. I am glad to hear that you had a great stay. Our breakfast area can be quaint when we have a full house, however our breakfast is available for 4 hours each morning to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to eat. I appreciate hearing that you recommend the hotel to other travelers. More
